Delayed Message: Domain name of email address not valid
The email message has not yet been delivered because the recipient's email provider says that the recipient's email address does not exist or cannot receive email.
Check the recipient's domain name in the recipient's email address for misspellings or missing letters. If an error is found, correct it in contacts list or address book for next time.
If necessary, contact the recipient another way (e.g., phone or text message) to confirm their email address.

A persistent transient failure is one in which the message as sent is valid, but persistence of some temporary condition has caused abandonment or delay of attempts to send the message. If this code accompanies a delivery failure report, sending in the future may be successful.
[RFC3463] (Standards Track) from the The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) definition for codes that end with X.1.2:
The destination system specified in the address does not exist or is incapable of accepting mail. For Internet mail names, this means the address portion to the right of the "@" is invalid for mail. This code is only useful for permanent failures.
